Johnny Depp wins defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard and he will receive $ 15 million

Johnny Depp prevailed in his three counts of defamation against Amber Heard and was awarded $15 million, the jury announced Wednesday. The seven-person jury also decided that Depp, through his lawyer Adam Waldman, defamed Heard on one of three counts in her countersuit; she was awarded $2 million.


The unanimous decision was delivered on the third day of deliberation, bringing an end to the trial after six weeks of emotional testimony recounting Depp and Heard’s tumultuous relationship and its fallout.


Depp, 58, said he was “overwhelmed” in a statement released after the verdict. The jury “gave me my life back,” he wrote. “I am truly humbled.” Heard, 36, had a more blunt assessment of the proceedings, saying that she was “sad I lost this case” and that the verdict “sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It sets back the idea that violence against women is to be taken seriously.”
Depp first sued Heard for $50 million over an op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post in 2018 in which she referred to herself as a public figure representing domestic abuse. Heard countersued Depp for $100 million after Waldman called her accusations a hoax. The trial was held in Virginia, where the printing presses and servers of The Washington Post are located.

A floating city in the Maldives!

Just 10 minutes by boat from the Maldivian capital, Male, a floating city large enough to accommodate 20,000 people is under construction. The reason for this is the risk to the Maldives due to the rapid rise in sea level.

Designed in the shape of a brain-shaped coral reef, the city has 5,000 floating units, including homes, restaurants, shops, and schools, including canals. The first units will be unveiled this month, with residents starting to move in early 2024 and the entire city is expected to be completed by 2027.

This project is a joint venture between the Government of the Maldives and another joint venture. The city was built as a practical solution to the harsh reality of sea-level rise.

The Maldives, an archipelago of 1,190 low-lying islands, is one of the world’s most vulnerable to climate change. 80% of its land area is less than a meter above sea level, and by the end of the century, levels are forecast to rise to one meter, thus flooding almost the entire country. But if a city floats, it can rise with the sea. The founder of Waterstudio, the architecture firm that designed the city, told foreign media that this was a “new hope” for more than half a million people in the Maldives.
